Solid deal for this particular item. I got one during BF for $720. I like it for what it is: a 100Hz IPS monitor with G-Sync for gaming. G-Sync is a game changer in a lot of ways, and makes for a much more pleasant experience with unstable framerates. The colors are pretty good as well.

It claims a 120Hz, but I would argue that this is in reality a 100Hz part. After trying to get anything over 110 to stick without issues, and seeing numerous reports of OC problems online, I just gave up and accepted it as 100. It's still a decent monitor at 100, but your mileage may very well wildly vary depending on your luck with anything beyond it. Some people report OC getting weaker and less stable with time as well.
The monitor also has solidly visible horizontal lines between pixels if you are close enough to it due to the pixel arrangement. They blur together in gaming, but can be very distracting when working with a lot of text.
IPS glow can be bad on these, though it might just be a matter of getting used to it. Can be annoying in dark scenes. I got an OK one, but there are some photos online of people getting a bad draw.
Some people (like me) also notice a warmer color shift on the right 1/4 of the panel. I've seen quite a few reports of it online, though it's not acknowledged by any publication.
Last note, keep in mind the size of the stand on this monitor. The stand is massive and easily takes up about a foot from the back of the desk. I am looking into other options, likely an arm.

In all, I couldn't imagine actually keeping this monitor at its MSRP, but at this price it might just be a good upgrade if you don't already have a 3440x1440 with G-Sync.

Yes, but doesn't nvidia go through quality testing to ensure parts are of the highest quality? How would OC get weaker over time?

On a serious note, any freesync monitors in this calibre for less? Nvidia users could look to use those come Jan 15.

Yeah this is a great office monitor, but then the gSync part (which adds $100+ to the price) is kinda useless. I don't think its a great gaming monitor. Well, it IS, but there are a ton of HDR1000 gSync (hw or sw) monitors coming out this year that will be around the same price points and the addition of HDR to gaming is pretty huge for SP games.

If all you do is play MP (fortnite, overwatch, etc) then this monitor is a great deal and worth getting but if you play a lot of single player games then you probably wanna get a HDR1000 gSync (Nvidia card) or Freesync (AMD) monitor.

This is way overkill. If you have $1000 and want a 34" curved monitor it's fine I guess. Movies are probably not a strong suite, because curved monitors are meant for one user sitting in front of the screen.

This is why I just got the Acer Predator X34P last night. $50 cheaper and same exact panel. the X34P has an external power brick instead of internal PSU. Same thing happens when trying to oc the X34P to 120hz, though. Anecdotally, if you keep the power brick cool -- it gets warmer when oc'ing -- it may stabilize the oc. I don't know 1st hand it's true, I just read it on the internet Smilie that a guy glued a heatsink to te brick and it solved his problem getting to 120hz.

so these are dropping in price very fast because 1) no hdr support, 2) no 4k, 3) not the highest refresh rate. CES 2019 showed up a bunch of new displays, granted not a single one going head to head with this one ( as far as I could tell) but many better panels for gamers. Also many of them will likely be gsync compatible which will likely be good enough to eliminate the need to get a g sync monitor for an nvidia card.
In any case Im rocking an Acer x34 (older version 100hz max refresh) and im glad to see companies pushing these high refresh monitors but this specific model at this point is becoming outdated.
Unfortunately, the monitors that do have HDR, 4K (as well as high refresh) are around $1800. It's going to take a while for prices to significantly drop on those. So unless you want to drop a grand more on resolutions where 100+hz is nearly unattainable on today's GPUs, this monitor will be pretty relevant for a really long time.
